A half-century ago, the famous band Beatles performed at the Monumental bullring in Barcelona. In memory of that event, the Barcelona Beatles Weekend fest will be held on June 26-28 in the Catalan capital and that is the best time for Barcelona outdoor activities.
The Bederrida park will be the main festival venue. Among groups, which will perform at the fest, there will be the Early Beatles, the Ed Tulipa, the Beat-les Corts, the Los Beatl's and the Xaints. Pete Best, a percussionist, who performed with the Beatles in 1960-1962, will be a honorary participant. The agenda will also include a meeting of owners of cars from the 1960-ies. There will be also a marketplace with clothing and accessories of that time. Illusionist Magic Zappa will appear too. There will also be competitions seeking for the best knowledge of the Fab Four music, a puppet show and even special activities for kids.
The Avenida Palace Hotel, where the musicians stayed in time of their concert in Barcelona on 3, July 1965, will host a gala dinner, accompanied with the Xaints's concert, Noticia.ru reports. The Xaints will perform their versions of the Beatles compositions in the Catalan. Facilitators of the fest are going to hold it annually on the last weekend of June.
